To be the primary destination of education, care, and therapies for the severely-disabled student. To continue to enhance our already high level of excellence, service, and dedication towards our world-renowned, cutting-edge therapeutic & educational center to better meet the unique needs of our hundreds of developmentally delayed, poverty-stricken, medically fragile students ranging in age from birth to 21+. To ensure our students gain the complex skills needed across their lifespan, from early childhood through adulthood, to allow them to fully participate and compete in the 21st Century.

By continuing to enhance our already existing, award-winning program. Some of our Program Distinctions are as follows: We have hundreds of severely disabled students benefitting from our awesome programs. Additionally, Our ability to think and perform "outside the box" in an effort to help our special needs students. Several of our unique, life-enhancing programs that are being replicated by special needs schools throughout the country are: 1. Our "cutting-edge" Integrated program: classes consists of children/young adults with special needs, partnered together with their mainstream peers, working hand in hand to form a warm & loving learning experience for all. 2. Early Intervention Program: This program provides complete physical, occupational, speech therapy, and literacy teaching skills to children, age's newborn to three. As a result of this early start, these special children may not need new, additional services later on in their lives. 3. Our Workforce Development/Vocational Training Program (Enhancement Phase): as discussed here is to significantly enhance our transition program for the children at The School for Children with Hidden Intelligence (SCHI). Our goal is to enhance the training to our special need adolescents to provide them with the necessary skills to be productive citizens within their communities. With that focus, we have developed a unique, collaborative model involving teachers, therapists, parents, family members, and community business whereby students will obtain the indispensable work-related skills and emotional support necessary for them to experience lasting vocational and personal success in their adult lives. Please note that Executives & our wonderful students from The School for Children with Hidden Intelligence's (SCHI) Vocational Training & Financial Literacy Program were invited to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on December 29th in New York City to highlight SCHI's worldwide impact to the special needs community.

Since it's founding in 1995, SCHI, a state-certified organization, has shown through results that we are second to none on educating our multiply handicapped & underprivileged children & adults from throughout the Tristate region & beyond. SCHI provides educational and therapeutic services by certified professional staff to children with disabilities as varied as autism, Down syndrome, ADHD, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy, among others. SCHI places great emphasis on maintaining a high teacher to pupil ratio (minimum of 1:2) along with individualized educational programs, designed to fit each student's specific needs. SCHI's unique curriculum gives special children & adults the opportunity to benefit from a wide range of subjects including vocational training, financial literacy & career development, art, music, computers, as well as math, language arts & science courses. Regular classroom faculty is augmented by specialists in various occupations: physical, occupational and speech therapy, behavior modification and social work. Included in SCHI's additional services are: early intervention, adult programs, and group home services. Our main goal is to provide every student with a chance to excel.

Evaluations of the program's effectiveness are to take place quarterly through our professionally trained supervisory staff of social workers, teachers, and therapists. Periodic screening and progress reports will determine the gains made with each student. SCHI will also conduct a pre and post survey of participants and teachers to determine the success of all of our special education programs.

Our outcomes prove that our students are obtaining the indispensable skills and emotional support necessary for them to experience lasting educational and personal success in their adult lives. However, with continued growth and determination, we hope to serve even more developmentally delayed, poverty-stricken, and medically fragile students.
